NIPLATE® 600 Medium phosphorus
Medium phosphorus electroless nickel
Niplate 600 is a medium phosphorus (5-9% in P) electroless nickel plating. Niplate 600 is the most commonly used of Niplate coatings thanks to its high wear resistance, good corrosion resistance and its affordability.
Excellent wear resistance
Thanks to its hardness and micro crystalline structure Niplate 600 has high wear and fretting resistance.
Thickness being equal, compared to other treatments Niplate is cheaper thanks to the high efficiency of the deposition process.
Uniform and constant thickness over the entire surface, including holes, ideal for precision mechanical engineering pieces with reduced tolerances.
Applicable on various metals
All the most common alloys used in mechanical engineering can be coated – iron, copper and aluminium alloys.
The corrosion protection of Niplate 600, assessed by means of salt mist test, depends on the base material, piece machining and finishing and the thickness of the applied coating.
Approximate corrosion resistance values
NSS according to ISO 9227 – Thickness 20 μm – corroded surface < 5%
For application where high chemical resistance is required Niplate 500 is recommended in place of Niplate 600. Niplate 600 does in any case have good chemical resistance above all in alkaline environments.
Approximate values of compatibility with the coating environment only, they do not indicate corrosion protection of the base material. The overall performance of the coated piece depends to a large extent also on the type and quality of the base material. The actual resistance to the environment must in any case be tested in the field.
